Camping in Alaska's largest National Park means there won't be too much disturbing light from cities or towns and with a aurora forecast between 4 and 5 (on a scale between 0 and 9) we thought it was worth a try setting up a Northern Lights Night Watch Schedule... (all photo credits to Keith M)
Dave's and my turn was at 1.30 am in the morning. When we first glanced at the sky, we didn't see much. First, I actually thought I saw just some bright, white clouds. Then we realised that those "clouds" were moving pretty fast across the sky... those were the Northern Lights!
